hey everyone. first off i am new to this forum and i am not currently a subie owner but hope to be very soon. i was planning on getting a wrx limited, 5 speed of course so i called a friend today at a local dealer and to get the car in the color i want (rally blue) i have to order it. what i am curious about is the limited i he told me about. has anyone heard of this? its supposedly a limited production car that has more horse than a standard wrx but less than an sti. somewhere in the middle. about 2 grand more than a regular rex and 3 less than an sti. i have not seen any info or specs on this car. anyone heard of it?? one other question as far as options go i dont see a need for security upgrade if i am going to install a better alarm anyway, i would rather get aftermarket gauges than opt for the oem boost gauge. i couldnt care less about a auto day night mirror because i am going to smoke out the windows. the only option i am considering is the short throw shifter. my question for those that have it is, how much of a difference does it really make in the shifts? i have driven an 04 wrx without it and it seemed to shift pretty quick to me, a lot better than my accord anyway. thanks guys. by the way, are there any meets or club gatherings in the nj/philly area?
IMO, the security upgrade for the WRX is pretty good. It has shock and door sensors, valet mode, etc. Uses the horns for alerting, so a simple upgrade is some 118dB Hella Supertone horns . I think it has starter kill too - though I can't remember. Doesn't matter though, my access port will handle it
As far as I know, I think your dealers is mistaken or is talking nonsense. I researched and looked at every possible source for the 2006 wrx and there was not one shred of such info. Of course, I could be wrong but I highly doubt it.
no, i have the japanese wrx borchure right in front of me, it does not say anything about a limited i. Your dealer is mistaken (very common among new sales reps. When they dont have the answer, sometimes they lie) so i'd suggest talking to the internet manager o fleet manager, usually they are more knowledgable about this stuff. "usually".
